ANOTHER POINTER.
When trees arrive from the nurse
it will be noticed that on one side
of the bark a sort of a growth that
looks like moss mav be seen. This
is the side of tlm tree that faced the
north In the nursery grounds. The
tree should tie planled so that this
side faces the north In its permanent
position. The reason for this is
that the side of the tree that faces
north gets a sort of thickening ot
the hark and by keeping It facing
that wav It prevents nny chance of
the hark cracking, which so often
happens II the trees are planted haphazard.
BULL RIVER FALLS
Oeorge Henderson was in town
from Bull river on Tuesday. Krom
oue hundred ami sixty to two hundred settlers are coming in next week,
uli of which will settle or invest in
lbe Bull River district. A townsite
has been laid out and there is
already a store and a livery stable
there.' Other buildings will follow
and very soon Bull Rivet falls will
he one of the prosperous towns of
the district. With Lhe wonderful
water power and other natural resources there is no reason thai Bull
River falls should not grow into a
substantial town. One suggestion:
Applv for a post office and thus get
on lhe map.
REAL ESTATE VERY ACTIVE.
Real estate, both iu the city and
in tlm surrounding country, is finding
a ready sale these days. Town lots
are changing bunds daily and acreage
property all over tbo district is moving freely. Cranhrook is lucky in
having a bunch of real estate men
who are not only hustlers but arc
ready lo give information to anyone
wlio wishes to learn about tbe possibilities of the district from what
ever point of view is desired. V.
Hyde Baker, who controls the Craubrook townsite and the Cranbrook estate, and his office manager, Mr.
John Cholditeh, report the Bales of
town property better than ever this
summer. Beale & Elwell arc selling
subdivisions suitable for fruit farms
almost daily. They havo some excellent tracts and arc giving good
value. Arnold &■ Roberts hustle all
the time and are doing a big business, principally in town property,
of which they make a specialty. The
East Kootenay Investment company,
wlio own their own lands to a very
large extent, report sales quite
brisk. D. B. Dulmage, tbo man who
lives on the land, is getting ready to
subdivide a part of his tract aud is
prepared to sell parcels of all sizes
to intending settlers. Cranbrook is
proud of her real estate men, because tbey are gentlemen, hustlers
and good fellows.
If you arc looking for an investment" in East Kootenay, it will certainly be to your interest to call on
Fred A, Russell. He knows this
country better than any other real
estate firm or corporation in thc district and his success in selling land is
something wonderful. Mr. Russell
has the reputation of being able to
size a man up at a glance and has
never driven a customer out to see
i place that he didn't sell to. Others may try to copy his system, but
without success. He has just closed
a deal with a Winnipeg syndicate for
8116 acres, belonging to Harvey
Houghland, south cast ot Cranhrook.
Mr. Russell only had thirty davs to
this land and he sold it inside of
fifteen days. He sure is a rustler.
 f—
DEVELOPMENT      OF
MERE.
WINPER-
(Victoria Colonist.)
Brief mention was made in yesterday's Colonist in thc course of an
interview with II. J. Hafiner, Irrigation nud hydraulic engineer of the
Columvia Valley Irrigation company,
of the beauties and prospects of Windermere valley, and tlm fact that it
is likely lo become largely settled
in the near future. Mr. Hafiner has
furnished some further information
about that district which shows tbat
t is one of tlm most attractive in
British Columbia.
The vallev extending from Ooldcn
to Fort Steele is about ISO miles
long mid varies in width from three
to eight miles. The center ol it.
About Uie Windermere lakes, enjoys a
very equable, mild and dry climate.
In spite of the fact that the only
means of communication with the
tside world is a summer boat ser-
?0 from Ooldcn, a great deal of development has taken place and such
well known mines as tlm Paradise
and Ptarmigan, on whose development (600,000 has already been spent,
lmve been opened, nnd large acreages
are under cultivation, the products
heing used for local consumption. For
many veins orchards have produced
lirst-class crops ot apples nnd plums
And the smaller fruits nnd vegetables
are of a particularly fine quality and
give large yields.
From n scenic ami sportsman's
standpoint the valley is unsurpassed
in British Columbia. It lies between
the 'Selkirks nnd 11m Rockies and is
opened up with fine stage nnd other
roads. Trails lend to the different
mines and prospects.
The Kootenay Central railway hns
done some small work, having graded
on about twelve miles south from
Golden, It is now understood that
construction work will bo carried forward continuously, and contracts let
for grading north from its junction
with the Crows Nest line. Surveys
now almost completed, and the
contract for some part of tho construction work will probably he let
this summer. As already announced
tlm irrigation company will not
throw its land on the market until
the railwav Is built.
THE BOYS' BRIGADE
About forty hoys were in line on
Momlay evening last and had
splendid march out nnd drill, under
Captain Hughes. Sergeant Crooks
wus with the company for the first
lime. The uppcurancu id the boys
ou the front street was interesting
lo the numerous spectators and many
remarks of appreciation were
heard. After tho drill ice
cream was served by the ladies of the
Band uf Hope, nml the boys made
known llieir enjoyment in a rousing
cheer fur those who so kindly treated
thorn. Plans are being worked out
fm about a week's camping early in
the hut days, when rigorous mllitarv
drill and discipline will tm combined
wilh a free and easy time.
NEW TIME CARD.
The train card is as follows under
the new schedule: The regular number
213 ami 211 will arrive from the east
ul 11.10 and from the west at 15.20.
The local will arrive from the east
at 23.05 and leave at (i.30. The
Soo-Spokune-Portland will arrive
from the east at 12.50 and from the
west at 17.55. No. 213 will not
'onnect with thc Spokane train at
Curzon.
JACK SCOTT LEAVES.
'Jack" Scott, who has been chief
despatcher for the C.P.R. here for
some years past and who is one of
Cranbrook's hest known and best
liked old timers, has been transferred
to Souris, Manitoba. Mr. and Mrs.
Scott will be missed by a very largo
irele of friends in Cranbiook, where
they have lieen deservedly popular.
" lack" Scott, hy his courteous manner, has made a friend of every husiness man in the city, while Mrs.
Scott, wlio grew to womanhood here,
has a very large circle of friemls in
the city. Mr. and Mrs. Scott will
be missed, and it is only to be hoped that they will be happy in their
new home.

NEW BRICK PLANT.
The Cranhrook Tile & Brick company have everything In shape and
will he burning brick by next Saturday. This company is going after
the brick business of the district and
will undoubtedly find a readv sale
for their product from Nelson to
Lethbridge. Tlm most modern
machinery has been installed and the
most skilled mechanics engaged. The
day is of the finest quality and
with proper handling will show brick
equal to any produced in the west.
The promoters of the company arc
to he congratulated upon their enter-
orise and it is to he hoped that
large profits will Im their reward.

TAKING NOTICE.
(Victoria Week.)
11 is refreshing to uml thc Colonist
at variance with the Toronto Globe;
it has for so long imbibed its leading
ideas from the Liberal journal tbat
in many respects it bad become a
western replica of Oeorge Brown's
testament. Lately, however, it has
had misgivings, and now it roundly
accuses its mentor of talking ahout
what it docs not understand; and the
Colonist is right tor the ignorance of
the eastern press on western affairs
is profound. The trouble is that the
right men are not sent to gather
information and those who do come,
instead of being left untrammelled to
gather their own data are steered ln-
n rut, and krpt moving along the
same track as their predecessors.
Inst why sport, scenery and climate
hould be considered the only assets
if British Columbia it is hard to
understand. As a catch phrase the
"Sportsman's  Paradise"  sounds    all
y well, but as a money-maker and
a builder up or the country, any one
f our numerous industries discounts
I. If the Toronlo Globe would send
men with special knowledge to examine thc agricultural and mineral
resources of the country, or even it
they would give prominence to the
reports nf the members of the geological survey, who spend their summers here, they would get far he-
vond the mere platitudes of description in which thev now indulge, and
wouhl lull the world something well
worth knowing. As a matter of
facl the O.T.P. will traverse a country from the Rockies to the Coast
iMpablc nf yielding coal, copper, and
silver-lead, in possibly as large
quantities ns the Kootenay. It will
open up a fnr greater area of ex-
Iremelv fertile land than that which
lias attracted so much attention in
lhe interior for fruit growing and
mixed farming purposes. After reading tbo editorial in the Globe the
onlv reasonable conclusion is that
once mote "the prentice hand" has
been nt work.
OPENING OF THE NEW PALM.
Robert Aikins has moved his stock
from the Palm on Baker street to
the new Palm next door to the Auditorium. Mr. Aikins has made a
great success of the confectionery
business and owing to the increasing
business has found It necessary to
move to larger quarters. Next
Saturday there will be an opening nt
tlm new Palm and music will be a
feature, both afternoon and evening.
With more room for the ice cream
parlors, with handsome furniture and
courteous treatment, Mr. Aikins' husiness should increase largely.
COMING TO CANADA.
That between 75,000 and 100,000
persons, most ot tbem American
farmers, will settle in tho Western
provinces of Canada during thc present year is the substance of a report sent by Consul Franklin D. Hale,
of Charlottctown, to thc department
of commerce and labor.
"The total amount of wealth tbey
will take will run into millions,"
continued the representative. "Since
UI03 over 200,0(10 homesteads have
heen granted to settlers, and thc
population of the Dominion has Increased over 1,000,000. It Is estimated that the total trade has increased $178,000, and the product of
grain has shown an increase of nearly 100,000,000 bushels. There are
still available for homesteads tn
Manitoba 17,825,000 acres, in Saskatchewan 104,878,000 and 117,869,000
In Alberta."
NO CHANCE FOR ARGUMENT.
Alberta's richest resource is oil.
It will make vou independent for life
if not a fortune. Only ono offering
at par value will be made and big
over subscription is expected. Copies of allidavils confirming state*
meats can be had for asking.

The C. P. R. is at present

pile of tailings which has accumulated. These tailings will be used as

MAY BE BLACK HAND AGAIN
(Fernie District Ledger.)
Rumor of "Black Hand" operations
have lieen rile for some time in tbu
city again. "Black Hand" wnrk Li
a touchy subject here, as ahoul a
year ago quite a number were round
ed up after attempting to carry oi
operations in our city.
Acting on information placed in
their bands, the provincial police
along with Chief Burroughs and
Constable Gorman captured a man at
Coal Creek on Monday, locating him
u a shack at that place wliich is
tenanted hy a number of Italians.
Tlie name given to the police is
Joseph Raniera. He is a son of
Sunny Italy, about 21! years of age,
about 5 ft. )l in., smooth shaven, and
f course, dark complexion. lie
wore a dark suit.
The citizens in tliis case wlio aro
singled out for bleeding are Al Rlzzu-
to and Louis Corrosella, and in letters it was intimated to them that
unless they saw fit to deposit a certain sum of legal currency at a slated location on short notice, things
would happen to them that would lie
too horrible to mention.
Raniera was brought up heforc
Magistrate Whimster on tlm charge
of carrying concealed weapons, and
on this score was given thirty days,
in which time the Black Hand portion of the ease would be more thoroughly investigated.
The prisoner was lodged in jail safe
ami sound, and as usual when dinner
time came King's charity was dispensed to him.
It is supposed now that in passim;
in and out of the cell with dinner for
Lbe man, the jailer has not securely
fastened the locks, and the Italian
was quick to notice the fault and
make good use of bis chance.
The Ledger received word Ihis
morning that Rnnicrn had been
•aueht at Elko. The station agent
spotted him and the police were notified. He was brought hack to the
city on the noon train.
GEOLOGICAL SURVEY.
S. .1. Schoflold, of the Dominion
geological survey Is in the city, and
the mapping of East Kootenay will
commence at once. Mr. Schofleld
has decided to m«Ve Crnnbrook his
headquarters and bis base of supplies.
Outside of his chief assistant Mr.
Schofleld will employ nothing but
local men In his work.

of Corpus Chrlsti will he celebrated
at the St. Eugene Mission. High
mass will take place at 10 a.m. and

at the Mission is always interesting
as practically all the Indians in East
Kootenay take  part in the ccrcmon-

The pictures at thc Edison are as
popular as ever ami good houses
bave been the rule this week. The
feature films this week were: "U. S.
Championship Baseball Match, 1908,"

FATS VS. FATS.
The Craubrook fat men met tlm
Fernie fat men at a baseball game
in Fernie last evening. The Cranbrook team went down in defeat before the Fernie boys. The Cranbrook team consisted of George Hoggarth, J. Sheldon, C. Yeandle, O.
Phillipps, G. Mead, G. Leitch, W.
Rollins, D. McKenzic and J. P. Fink.
Thc game could hardly be called a
hot one but the fun was there just
the same. A number of Cran-
brookites accompanied the team, including F. Cryderman, J. F. M.
Pinkham, T. Turley, D. Elmer, Dr.
Coffin, E. H. Small, G. Thompson
and A. C. Bowness.

WANTS CABLE
Victoria, .lune 8.—Discussing the
suggestions uf the Imperial press con-
fcrenco Premier McBride endorses the
establishment nf state owned cables
nailing Britain aud her colonics as
thoroughly practical and an important step towards imperial unity aud
a profitable commercial investment
for lhe empire. The trouble now
is thai cabling is so restricted, owing to excessive rates lhat the 'several Auglo-Saxon peoples are unable
(o keep informed as to the important
events occurring, perhaps of an his-
torlc character, outside their own
circumscribed circles.
state owned cables conducted as
public utilities and cheap telegraph
rates throughout the land, are much
needed. With these will hu inaugurated a comprehensive and reliable
news service.

CHAS. DIAMOND IS DROWNED.
(Moyie Leader.)
Chas. Diamond was drowned iu
Uiu narrows above Lown Thursday
afternoon about I o'clock, and up to
the time of going lo press Um body
lius not been recovered. Search
parties have been nl work almost
continuously drugging for thu body,
and llie use of dynamite has been resorted lo without rcsulls. The accident occurred about opposite    the
awmill of Um Porto Rico Lumber
company, where Uiu water is lli feet
deep nl llm present Lime. J. F.
Diamond, n brother of the deceased,
living at Cashmere, Wash., wns noti-
lled and lias wired thai he would
siurl ut onco for here. He will
probably arrive loday.
Thursday afternoon Diamond and a
mun named Dan McLennan, a strang-
r in Die camp, Look a boat aud
started for Munrou lake lo have a
few days1 fishing. When they were
in the narrows, Diamond in some
way lost bis balance and full out of
tlm boat. McLennan docs not seem
lo Im able to tell just how it happened.
A Lelephone message from lhe mill
notified the people in town, and immediately a search was begun. But
this is tlm high water season, and it
is doubtful if the body is found fur
sume time.
Charlie Diamond was a landmark
and a character in Moyie. Everybody knew him and everybody liked
him! He was generous to a fat i
and the door of his cabin was never
locked. He would cheerfully divide
his last two-hits or his last bannock with anyone who needed it. He
came to Moyie before the railroad
was built, and followed mining and
prospecting ever since. He bad a
good education and was an interesting conversationalist. He was ahout
50 years of age. There is general
regret over his sad ending.
TWO GOOD HOTELS.
Peler Matheson is the proprietor of
tlm Imperial and Wentworth hotels,
of this city. Mr. Maiheson takes
pride in his establishments and noes
all in his power to keep them up to
a high standard. The Imperial has
been a popular place ever since it
was opened and is always filled lo
its utmost capacity. The dining
room is satisfactory to the patrons
and thc rooms are alwavs neat and
clean. When Mr. Matheson purchased the Wentworth hotel it was necessary for him to secure the services
of some man who would make a good
manager. In consequence he gave
James Buchanan, better known as
"Seottv'', the position, and he could
not have done better. Under Mr.
Buchanan's management tlm Wentworth has become a most popular
hotel. From cellar to garret thc
place is as clean and neat as a private home, the meals arc ot thc hest
and the man who stops there knows
lhat his room is as clean, as fresh
as linen, soap, water and a broom can
make it. That is why tlm hotel is
doing such a good business and increasing in popularity.
SINCLAIR—MACKAY.
Married, at Spokane, Wash., on
June 2nd, Robert Sinclair to Catherine MacKav, tlm Rev. Kramer officiating, Mr. Sinclair is tlm well
known chief of tlie bridge and building department of the C.P.R.. and
has heen here for tlm last twelve
years, during which time he has
made a host of friends. Mrs. Sinclair has b-een on the staff of the
Hotel Cranhrook for a lone time and
is one of the most respected young
ladies in the city. Mr. and Mrs.
Sinclair will have Um good wishes of
the whole community for their future
happiness.
SLOAN IS OUT OF POLITICS
Ottawa. June I.—There is no truth
iu tlie rumor that William Sloan,
former member of parliament tor
Comox-Atlin, will enter into British
Columbia politics a.s leader of tlm op-
position.     Sloan said when seen:
"There is absolutely nothing in it.
I am out of politics and will stay
out. Besides tin- present leader of
Lhe opposition in British Columbia is
satisfactory in every respect."
WHAT THE ADVANCE MAN SAYS
"A Message From Mais" has a
wonderful eiiect on Um audience. It
brings the happiest expressions about
iue eyes and mouths of Um watchers,
makes them eager to applaud and to
be agreeable. " An excellent cast
will present it here at the Auditorium, June lath.
William Matthews is taking over
the pool room at the Roval hotel
next Saturday, Mr. Matthews will
make a success of this enterprise, because he is a rustler and is well liked by the people of the citv. Mr.
.Mathews has been with A. L. McDermot fur some time and Mr. Mc-
Dermot's loss is the Roval hotel's
gain.
The Pineher Creek Oil Co., Ltd.,
undoubtedly have a proposition ot
merit. They are as sure of success

tinctly human. No comedy, no matter how bright its lines or novel

Rambling Reveries
ton company had been heralded hy
Hindi praise, il was practically an
uiuiiiiwii quantity so fur us Winnipeg
was concerned, yet so keen was Llm
desire to bear "grand" opera that
llie very first production was greeted
ny a large and thoroughly ii.pu.si.iita-
nve audience, wliich showed time aud
again during the evening, uud in the
most decisive ami spontaneous manner, its complete enjoy ment ol the
pel formauce.
1 ne Boston compauy made a happy
choice for its opening night in "11
Trovatorc." It would he difficult to
ueJine Llm full charms of Ihis delightful creation of Verdi's genius or to
tell, why il retains so firm & bold upon Lhe affections of music-lovers, unless it is that "11 Travotore" contains so much melody uud so little
of llie recitative that marks, and for
some, mars the works of many olbur
composers. The fact remains th.it
for over lifty years this opera has
held iis wonderful popularity and has
been a melodic delight to innumerable
audiences throughout the world, just
as it was last night to those those
who heard it at the Winnipeg.
Tbe company is an excellent one,
especially as regards thu principals.
Madame Judith Eraimini, in the part
nf Leonora, sang with exquisite feeling, and gave a most artistic conception of the part. Her voice Is a
ine7.xo soprano, of rich and beautiful
quality, particularly in the middle
register. Its strength and beauty
were not fully revealed until the last
acl in the recitative and aria
"D'ainior, sull1 all Hoses," and in
her duets with Mnnrlco during her
farewell visit to ber lover's prison.
Signora Grcca Iticci produced an
immensely favorable impression in the
ill 111 cult part of the gypsy mother.
She is that rare combination, the
actress and singer. Her impersonation of Ihu revengeful, passionate old
gypsy, whose mistaken act robs her
of her son, ami thrusts her into a
life that had hatred and longing for
revenge as its only motive, was wonderfully realistic and convincing. Added to tbis was a voice of great
range, magnificent quality and fine
dramatic capacity. Signora RlccI
will undoubtedly establish herself as
a popular favorite during her stay iu
Winnipeg.
Of Signor (Mmrardi, who sang Man-
rieo, und Signor Achille Alherti, the
Count di Luna, only words of sincere
praise can he spoken, Signor
(Iherardi's voice is a tenor of exceptional strength and sweetness,
which he uses with wonderfully
pleasing effect, distinctly so in Man-
rico's passionate outburst, "Ah, si,
hen mio," in the third act. Ilis
voice continued clear and powerful
throughout the entirt performance,
with no sign of weakening. Signor
Alherti was excellent as Count di
Luna, his splendid baritone, his ait-
ing and appearance, fitting him admirably for the part.
The introductory, recitative and
narrative were splendidly done by
John McDonald as Ferrando, the
count's attendant.
IL is not easy to single out individuals for special praise in a performance which in its entirety was so
satisfying. The charm of the music,
much of it so widely and intimately
known, was increased hy its rendition
in English, Madame Francini being
the only singer who retained the
Italian.
Tlie success of this venture in
grand opera in Winnipeg is assured
without question, ft Is to he hoped
that the crowded house wliich greeted
these artists upon their initial appearance will be repeated during the
entire engagement.
This companv will appear nt tlm
Auditorium on the 21th of June.

till: BUFFALOES THAT WILL BE
IN CHANBUOOK.
Speaking of the buffalo that will
ne ied anu watered in Craubrook, lhe
i->ary liurald says:
toward Douglas, commissioner of
Dominion paras, is in the city, returned Irom ten days spent at the
uuiiuio   round-up   of the   last ut the
i,eminent herd purchased from
Pablo.
Douglas says that the difficulties met witb have been tremendous
mil that Pablo, who is in direct
charge of tlm rouud-up, is going at
Um work systematically and thoroughly uud that the herd will very
probably    he   all   gathered in by    a
uplu of wcuks or so.
'I ne round-up commenced when Mr.
Douglas arrived ten days ago, and
llm headquarters are at the corrals
about eighteen miles trom Honan,
nud right in tbe Klathead mountains.
During the past leu days 118 head
have been eorraled and are being held
and fed iu the corrals.    The work ol
uiidiiig-up the animals is very dilli-
ll, uud ul though there were one
hundred horses and thirty-five men
al the start, and each horse worked
only every third day, yet it has been
tound necessary to get more mounts,
as the present number is not able to
stand the work.
I'he buffalo are scattered throughout the mountains in small bands of
from five to ten. One band of
twenty has been brought in. The
men go out and sweep the country
till they liml a band and then they
bring tbem right to the corrals, not
taking any chances on trying to pick
up any more that day. Some days
the rlilors have to go out forty miles
iu the mountains to pick up one of
small hands.     This, of course
tlies
has been very hard on the horses,
and Sunday last, the work shut down
while Pablo sent out for fifty more.
The work of rounding-up the great
brutes will then Im proceeded with
until the great bulk of tbe throe
hundred head is in
Mr. Douglas says there will probably be some of the old bulls who
will never leave the range. He says
these animals are impossible, practically to round up, and that when the
bulk of the herd is in and the final
shipment made that Pablo intends to
shoot all the animals remaining,
Pablo has left nothing undone to
complete the job this time. Al-
readv on this round-up ajone he has
spent at least $10,000. There arc
twenty tents in the round-up camp,
two cooks and boarding camps. Hay
and waler arc being hauled, the hay
being brought eighteen miles. Pablo
also has built great wings leading
to the corral traps. Thc wings are
three miles wide at the opening end,
one wing is seven miles long the
olher is five miles, and these great
guides lead down to the banks of tbo
Pen iP Oreille river, leaving an opening of only twenty feet through
which tlm buffalo arc shot into tlie
wide, deep river, inside of booms
that force the animals to swim
straight across to the traps.
The wide end of the wings open on
a Iomr coulee down which the buffalo

If we see no goinl iu others they
will likely discover but little iu us.
The time which a hoy spends at his
mother's knee is never forgotten by
the mau.
A woman's first duty is to her
home aud children—a duly tlial cannot wisely be delegated to another.
The boy who takes bis hat oflf when
he enters tho house is the one who
usually has his hair combed and bis
face clean, and the girl or boy who
says "please" and "thank you" is
always prettier Lhan tbu one who
forgets these things. Just look
around und sec if this is not true
There are many housekeepers who
work sixteen hours a day, while
three or four healthy, active boys
stand around aud watch her. Tbey
cannot help her hecause housework is
"girl's work," and tbey cannot lower
their standard of Canadian manhood
A little reform would work for good
in more ways than one in all such
cases.
It isn't enough to believe that
"every cloud has a silver lining,'
and then sit down and wait for the
lining to reveal itself. We can, if
we will, take Lbe X-ray of determination, and piece the cloud and find its
bright side. We can, it we will,
control our moods, shake oft depression and drive away "the blues.'
Think of the good the gods give and
be happy.
The family sitting room should be
the besl anil mosl luxurious room in
the house. Here the family gather
to read and talk and enjoy themselves as Ihev can nowhere else. It
should bo we'll lighted, well ventilated, aud well warmed. The old fashioned way of putting the best and
prettiest'of everything into the parlor and then shutting out air uml
sunlight lo keep the furniture from
spoiling is a stupid senseless and
wicked fashion.
DANGEROUS GIFT.
Beauty is a dangerous gifl. It is
uvea so. Like wealth, il has ruined
its thousands. Thousands of the
most beautiful women are destitute
of common sense and common humanity. No gift from heaven is so
general as to tlm gift of beauty. In
about nine casus in ten il makes her
silly, senseless, thoughtless, giddy,
vain, proud, frivolous, selfish, low
and mean. We think we have seen
more girls spoiled by beauty than by
uny other one thing, "She is beautiful and she knows it," is as much
as lo say she is spoiled. A beautiful girl is very likely to believe she
was made lo lie looked at; and so she
sets herself up for a show at every
window, In every door, on every corner of the street, in every company
at which opportunity offers for an
exhibition of herself. And believing
ami acting thus, she soon becomes
good for nothing else, and when she
comes to be a middle aged woman
she is that weakest, most sickening
of all human things—a faded beauty.
POOR GIRLS.
The poorest girls in the world are
those not taught to work. There
are thousands of them. Rich parents have petted them, and they have
been taught to despise labor and to
depend upon others for a living, and
are perfectly helpless. The most
forlorn women belong lo this class.
It is the duty ot parents to protect
their daughters from this deplorable
condition. They do them a great
wrong if they neglect it. Every
daughter sliould he taught io earn
her own living. The rich as well as
the poor require this training. The
wheel of fortune rolls swiftly around;
the rich are likely to become poor,
and the poor rich. Skill added to
labor is no disadvantage to the rich,
and is indispensable to the poor.
Well-to-do parents must educate
their daughters to work. No reform
is more imperative lhan this.
THE BOYS.
Mothers train your boys to Im neat
in Mm bouse. They should he
taught to look after themselves, and
to keep their hats and coats in their
proper places. Teach them this
habit, and y-nu will save many
noyances, and you will also do
kindness to the boys by teaching
tbem neatness and self-respect.
Bovs, as well as girls, should he
taught to help tn the house. How
often we have heen disgusted to see
tbat the girls are made to help with
the housework while the boys are
allowed to play checkers, or sit at
thc fire toasting their toes.
A hoy can help clear away after a
meal, sweep the lloor, polish the
stove or wash the dishes, just as effectively as a girl, He, as a rule,
is stronger.
Me will love his home more, and
wlmn he becomes a man, and has a
home of his own, he will respect his
wife all the more for having been
taught to respect his mother and
sisters.

When is the government going to
start on the new post ollice?
The Herald is in receipt ol the annual report ol the Children's Aid
Society ol Vancouver. Mr. C. ,1.
South, the superintendent, is to lie
congratulated on the magnificent
work he lias done. No nobler undertaking can he thought ol than
lhat which Ml*. South is doing. During the yenr filly-six children, Irom
all over ' tbe province, have bleu
laken care nf by the Institution,
making a total of two hundred nml
thirteen children that have been taken charge nl since the incorporation
of lhe society. More power to you
.Mr. Suuth, and may your work grow
Irom year to year.
Everybody in Cranbrook should
look out lor the visitation of buffaloes within the next ten days or
two weeks. About two hundred
will pass through the town on theit
way to the Dominion park near Edmonton.
Wlu-n vou plant trees vou might as
well plant fruil trees and thus assist
in demonstrating that East Kootenay
is a fruit country.
A knocker is a poor animal in anv
country.
The Herald never grows tired of
trvittir to do good for Cranhrook
nnd East Kootenay. It, has heen at
this work for over eleven years, its
editor lias spent his 1lme and his
monev in endeavoring tn advance the
hest interests nf the district, and proposes lo keep at the business ns lone
ns lie is In Cranbrook, which will
probably he the rest ot his life.
lf vou want to do a good thing tor
Crnnbrook send a copy of this week's
Herald to   your    friends, ns It con
tains all of the matter published    ia
Uu* Hoard of Trade pamphlet.
Tbe Movie Leader is now printed
all al homo and Mr. Smyth is to be
complimented on tbe improvement lie
has made in his paper.
The Herald had th. biggest month's
liusiiiess iu May that it has had
sinee il was established. Like
Cranlirook, the Herald keeps growing.
Tlie C.l'.lt. yards in Cranlirook arc
probably the best kept ol any along
lie line' of the Crow.
The  Hoard ol   Trade plot has been
 pletcd and trees plaated and     a
lent  wire fence   will enclose it    as
iuon ns the work can be done.
One of the best evidences ol the
fail that South East Kooteaav will
prove lo he a great fruit section is
llie prosperous condition of all fruit
lues at this time nf the year.
The lleralil is iu receipt of a
letter Irom Judge Turner, of Spokane, stating that the Sullivan com-
punv in all probability is insolvent.
Thai means that thc creditors, both
in lliis district and in Spokane, will
probably loose all that Is coming to
I hem.

some unexplained manner started oil
who was standing near the entrance
to tlio siding, scrambled into the
last truck as the train dashed down
tin* line at a speed of twenty miles
nu luun*, and applied llie brakes.
Then lie wont Irom truck to truck,
repeating the operation. Meanwhile
lhc train had dashed through Buckingham station at a great speed, to
the consternation of the officials,
wlm, .seeing there was no one on the
engine, telegraphed to the next station. Bates had also tried to reach
the engine, hut the space between the
leading truck and the locomotive was
so great as to make this an impossible task. Presently he was encouraged by thc slackening ol the
speed, and' just outside Wcstbury
station the runaway train came to a
standstill. It was now on a single
line, ami in front stood the passenger
I rain from Banbury and Bracklcy.
But for the coolness and pluck shown
liv Bates all awful catastrophe must
have resulted.

Cruel only to he kind,
And fo his exceeding dolour,
Clave him—several strokes behind.
This poetical explanation was offered at the Colchester police court,
by the solicitor representing the ltcv.
M. P. Mason, of Easthorpe, who was
summoned lot whipping a ten-year-
old hoy, named Hubert Hunt. The
boy admitted lhat he kicked the rectory palings ou his way from school
"to see it any were rotten." The
defendant caught him hy the coat,
said "Conic along," and marched hint
into the hack yard. A willow twig
was cut from a tree near hy, and
the hoy thrashed on the llcsb six
times with thc switch. Ho ran
home wliile and trembling to his
mother, who found a scries weals.
The defendant's solicitor said he had
explained lo Mr. Mason that he had
no right to take the law into his own
hands. Mr. Mason regretted thc action, but pointed out that the hoy
was struck in such a manner that
little injury was done. It was suggested that the summons might be
dismissed on payment of a guinea to
a local charity. The magistrate accepted this course, and ordered the
defendant to apologize to the parents of lhc lad, and to pay thc costs
of the hearing.

It is the Divisional Point and Termibal ol thc North
Star Branch of the C.P.R., which runs north into tlw rich
mining, lumbering and farming country of tho St. Marys
Valley, passing Wycliftc, Portcous, Marysville and Kimberley.
CAPITAL OF EAST  KOOTENAY IS CRANBROOK.

EAST KOOTENAY FROM AN INDUSTRIAL STANDPOINT.
Cranbrook is the industrial and commercial center ol
this District, its chief industries being I—
Railroading. Sash and Door Works,
Lumbering. Mixed Farming.
Mining. Fruit Growing.
Smelting of Minerals.
With the utilization ol nearby waterfalls, for the production of electrical energy tor manufacturing purposes, Cranbrook will naturally become a manufacturing center of great
importance and the cultivation of the surrounding agricultural land will ensure to ils citizens, at reasonable prices,
those products of farm, orchard and dairy at present being
imported from thc States and other outsidcpolnts, simply
because we have not got the people to grow thc still! here.
In this district we have eighteen saw mills, employing in
the neighborhood of 125(1 mcn.
Railroad shops employing men.
Divisional point on Crows Nest Pass Railway. Total
payroll $65,000 monthly.
Two sash and door factories and planing mills.
A cigar factory.
A steam laundry.
NEW BUILDINGS.
During 111011 new buildings will be erected to tbe value
nf $350,000, which will include $110,000 new brick and stone
public school, (foundation commenced); a $20,000 bank building, $10,000 Masonic Temple and many, fine residences, besides
extensions to the shops and round houses ol the Canadian
Pacillc Railway to the extent ol $100,000. Thc City ol
Cranbrook contemplates spending $10,000 on street improvements alone.
There are a number, ol projected lines ol railroad, with
Cranhrook as their destination.
The Kootenay Central Railway has a charter Ior a railway running up this valley connecting with the main line
ol tho Canadian Pacific Hallway at Golden—which will paSB
through an ideal Iruit ami mixed (arming country, also
ultounding in silver-lead and copper mines and large forests
ol timber.
The Crawford Ilav Railway has a charter for a road to
run up the St. Marvs Vallev, west to Crawford Bay, which
wouhl give Cranbrook and East Kootenay direct communi-
catlon with Nelson, with only a very short passage on the
Kootenay Luke, and would open up a rich mining, lumbering
and farming section of thc country.
As a divisional point, Cranbrook is assured indefinitely
ol being the headquarters of all railway men working nortli,
south, east and west.
CLIMATE.
The climate nl East Kootenay is, to say the least, Ideal,
and is recognized hy all who come here, cither to stay or
In going through, to be   something unsurpassed in Canada.
We have lour distinct seasons.
Spring opens up ahout the middle ol March, with beautiful sunny weather, though there is a cold snap in thc air.
The snow leaves thc open land about this time, and hangs
11 Utile longer under tbe timber. Ploughing can be commenced about lhc heginning of April, and the growth In the
ground hegins ahout May 1st.    Spring rains are frequent.
Slimmer is hot, but thcro is nearly always a light
brcezo, and the heat is not oppressive. The rainfall is
light, uiu.ul Iii In. to 20 in. on the average all the year
round, Including snow tall, .lune ls our wet month, July
August and September, beautilul weather.
Winter eoniincnces about the beginning of December, the
first snow lull coming ahout the middle ol the month;
generally there Is a cold snap hetore Christmas, and another
in Kebruary, lasting In each case about a week; but though
cold, the air is dry and no wind. There is good sleighing
all winter, Irom about December 15th to March 1st. This
district is particularly recommended by the medical profession as very healthy, particularly Ior any disease ol a
pulmonary nature.
HAS EAST KOOTENAY A MARKET?
Most decidedly it has, and its own larmers and producers
cannot even supply the local demand.
Imports Inlo the country may be conservatively estimated as follows :
Produced here.
Eggs     8,000 casee      800    cases
Cheese   70,000 pounds  none pounds
Butter  208,000 pounds  4,500 pounds
Ilam, Bacon, cte.300,000 pounds     200 pounds
Lard  150,000 pounds  10,000 pounds
Beef     0,000 head     1,500     head
Pork     5,000 head        800     head
Apples   15,000 boxes      100    boxes
Potatoes    1,500 tons      100     tonr
This district can supply all the above, having everything
necessary to produce them: climate, water, soil, area,
range. It only requires the people to come ln and raise
them.
Fruit is largely imported every year Irom the United
States, as thc quantity at present grown ln this district ts
limited to a dozen or so orchards only, and whilst those
are producing woll, It will be some time belore those now
being planted will be bearing. Fruits ol all kinds have been
grown here with great success and Iruit growing is beyond
the experimental stage. The East Kootenay market is
growing larger every day. Population is increasing In the
city and district, and the larmer and wholesaler have an
additional market to cater to each year. The East Kootenay market extends throughout Alberta and as lar east as
Winnipeg, Man., and It will be Impossible to ever dream ol
satisfying thc vast Prairie Provinces, and the Crows Nest
Pass with any ol thc commodities which we produce, especially fruit. The enormous coal fields ol the Crows Nest
Pass wlll take all wc can grow and never feel thc effects of
It In their market, and as our production Increases this demand will Increase three-told. There Is coal enough
there tn Insl for thousands nl years, shipping at the rate nl
5000 tuns per diem, ami tlicy have no land capable ot growing any produce, anil East Kootenay Dislriet In-ing the
closest producing country, it must necessarily he able to
quote lhe lowest price and capture the Irade.
RAILWAY TIE MANUFACTURE.
All tics lor   supplying the   C.P.R.    lor the districts of
Western Manitoba, Saskatchewan, Alberta aud Eastern B.C.
are uiiiile in   this vicinity,   making un earning capacity   of
$500,000 per annum.
A FRUIT RAISING DISTRICT.
The finest strawberries in Western Canada are produced
in um! around Cruiihruok. All kinds of fruit call bo raised
without the least difficulty. Tho day will come when the
supply ol fruit for the Crows Nest Pass Coal Fields and the
great prairie market ol the Northwest will depend entirely
uu the Kootenay District.
Apple trees were planted In East Kootcuay as lar as
25 years ago and since then, at dilfcrent times, otlier orchards liiiu* been planted, with the result that wc have, all
over East Kootenay, orchards with trees of different ages,
producing magnificent apples, plums, cherries and pears.
Tlicy all do well. Small fruits, such as raspberries, currants and gooseberries are grown in abundance.
Apples that have so lar been tried and that have proved
a complete success arc :
Wealthy. Yellow Transparent.
Snow. King ol Tompkins Co.
Duchess ol Oldenburg. Grimes' Gulden Pippin.
H11I Astiakali. Mcintosh Red.

FACTS   ABOUT FARMING.
Seeding ol spring wheat as well as the sowing ol other
crops depends entirely on thc opening ol spring, as it is
earlier some years than others. lt is usually commenced
uliitut the 1st ol April and tail wheat about the mnidle ol
August. Kail wheat is grown quite extensively and this is
loosed upon us an ideal lull wheat country, the usual yield
being about .10 bushels to the acre.
Thc vegetables produced in this district in quality and
quantity ure exceptionally good. Ten tons ol putaun-s per
acre is an average crop, sugar beets have given remarkable results and this could readily be made one of the
staple industries ol this district. Hay makes a great product, as it [etches sn go-d a price, aud a large tonnage is
grown in this district. On account ol thc large lumbering
operations carried un here, a great quantity has to be shipped into the country.
This is, besides an excellent stock raising country, there
being so large a free range, supplied with lakes and tine wild
lecd. Sheep have been urougbt in during recent years, aod
uu account of the success met with, there is likelv to be a
greater interest taken in tbe raising of this stock Irom
nuw on.
NATURE OF THE LAND.
East Kootenay may be aptly described as a triangular
valley, with the International Boundary as its base, and
bounded thereby on the South; by the Alberta boundary oa
the East and by the Selkirs Range on tbe west, lt is Uw
lirst fruit bearing section of British Columbia reached after
leaving the beautiful plains ol Alberta. Tbe country is
a park-like wooded country, and generally speaking a buggy
cau lie driven through tbe timber almost anywhere, un
each side ot the valky is a great range ol thc Rocky Mountains, which rise steeply Irom their base upwards. From
the base the land runs east and west in level terraces,
dropping by degrees until the level of thc Kootenay River,
which runs norlh and south through the center of the
valley. These terraces constitute the bench lands, and are
intcrcoursed with streams and creeks, upon which beaver
have worked extensively in the past, forming rich bay land
ol loamy soil in places, which are now nearly all occupied
as mixed farms, growing bay, fall wheat, fruit, etc. on the
sides of the larger rivers running through tbis district are
large areas of bottom land, clear to a great extent, and
partly covered with a growth ol poplar and willow. These
make rich hay producers and are sub-irrigated Irom tbe
river seepage. The majority ol the land in this district,
however, is the bench land, the best and richest ol which is
slightly wooded and now being cleared rapidly all over tbe
district. Wherever timber is found, a good sub-soil can be
looked lor; the soil is a rich loam, the product ol ages ol
decaying vegetable matter, and a small percentage of clay,
lt is close-grained, yet very loose and loamy when worked;
underlying tbis soil is a very deep stratum ol gravel
a-mented together with a glacial moraine. This is impervious to moisture and assists tbe top soil to retain its
moisture. These bench lands are generally slightly sloping,
making the under-drainage conditions all that could lie desired. This land can be cleared and made ready lor
ploughing at an average cost ol Irom $30.00 to 160.00 per
acre, dependent upon the size and quantity ol tlie stumps.
Thc best crops have been raised Irom these bench lands, and
only very exceptionally has a year gone by when irrigation
has been lound necessary. However, there is plenty ol
water for this process and many Irrigation systems are now
going in.
Thc wild products of this soil consist of fuur varieties ot
native grasses, namely, wild timothy, red lop, hunch grajs
and vetch or pea vine. These grasses grow thickly on tbe
ground and in many places are more than knee high. They
grow abundantly under tbe timher, but it has been proved
that after thc timher has been cut down, the bunch -trass
grows up stronger, lorcing any weeds or weak timber grasses
away, killing them altogether. Wild cherries, strawberries,
sarvisberries, huckleberries and raspberries also thri *c on
this soil.
